Spain’s endangered Iberian lynx brought back from brink of extinction

Ten years ago the Iberian lynx was nearing extinction but today, thanks to an imaginative conservation programme that has brought hunters, farmers and the tourist industry under its wing, its numbers have tripled from 94 to 312.

"We can’t claim victory yet but now there is hope," said Miguel Ángel Simón, the director of the programme for the recovery of the lynx in Andalusia, southern Spain. Only five years ago the animal was classified as critically endangered.

Dr Bhagavan Antle of The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S), photographs 4 varieties of Bengal tigers

Essentially my dream career to do this with a bunch of species in an enviroment like that so you can’t help but see the physical differences between them.

Also a friendly reminder that as pretty as these are, breeding for color in a species that isn’t very deep in the gene pool department is not good and I’m fairly certain these morphs are all recessive, so inbreeding is needed. Always question facilities that breed them intentionally.
